“Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.” —Thomas Fuller
Have you ever wondered why we don’t see God’s active handiwork and presence like we do in the Old Testament? God revealed Himself in some pretty radical ways back in the good ol’ days: disembodied hands writing on walls, pillars of fire leading the crowds, even having dinner with God on Mt. Sinai with Moses and the 70 elders of Israel. (No joke! Check out Exodus 24:9-11.)
With such radical signs of God’s hand in the world in Scripture, it’s easy to look around and wonder if He even works like that anymore. I’m convinced that He has never stopped working supernaturally across the globe, but I’m not just astounded by what He is doing “out there”; I’m astounded by something even more incredible: God is able to work “in us.”
